First look as Emmerdale's Manpreet vows to save Vinny as she fights back against Meena

By Jasmine Allday

Emmerdale's Manpreet Sharma has vowed to fight back against serial killer Meena Jutla.

The serial killer has murdered four people so far - her friend Nadine, and villagers Andrea Tate, Ben Tucker and Leanna Cavanagh - and is currently holding her sister Manpreet and Vinny Dingle hostage.

In a first look ahead of this week's explosive episodes, Manpreet desperately tries to save Vinny after he was hit on the head by evil serial killer Meena once she brought him to the barn where she's keeping her sister.

Vinny had followed Meena, suspecting she was involved in Ben's death - risking his own life.

In the spoiler clip, Vinny says: "I'm scared and she knows it... she's getting off on it. I don't want to die."

But Manpreet urges him to stay conscious, as she adds: "No, no, Vinny, open your eyes. Please, Vinny, can you hear me?"

The doctor thinks she's worked out how to get them both out of there as she finds a key with her foot and tries to reach it and save both herself and Vinny.

"Nobody is going to die today, trust me!" she tells him defiantly.

It comes after Meena actress Paige Sandhu teased that her character's mask will soon slip, as her downfall finally arrives.

"I think we have got a bit of exhilaration. As we go on, I wouldn't say that she's out of her depth, but I would say that she is definitely feeling the stress," she said, "She's having to juggle so many things while also having to keep her mask in the village, like we've seen Rishi is very suspicious of her, Liam is starting to get suspicious, there's Billy and Dawn snooping around and with Vinny, that adds all of the Dingles into the mix.

"All of that is adding to the stress that she is feeling. But at the same time, she thrives off being spontaneous. It's thrilling to her to be able to kill another person, which is horrible. There is both going on."

Paige has confirmed she will be departing the ITV soap soon, but wouldn't divulge if Meena will get her comeuppance.
